DAZN Named Apple TV App of the Year at App Store Awards 2021


DAZN was named Apple TV App of the Year at the tech giant’s 2021 App Store Awards, which recognize the top 15 apps and games across Apple’s various devices this year.

This year’s best apps and games delivered extraordinary experiences on Apple devices, and DAZN joins apps such as Craft, LumaFusion and Toca Life World in receiving distinction in this year’s awards.

“The developers who won the App Store Awards in 2021 harnessed their own drive and vision to deliver the best apps and games of the year, sparking the creativity and passion of millions of users around the world,” said said Tim Cook, Apple CEO.

“From self-taught freelance coders to inspiring leaders building global businesses, these exceptional developers have innovated with Apple technology, and many of them have helped foster the deep sense of unity we needed this year.”

For more than a decade, Apple has awarded the best apps and games at the end of each year. To recognize the impact of winning developer teams, last year Apple designers started a tradition of celebrating through meticulous craftsmanship with physical App Store rewards for each winner.

Inspired by the iconic blue App Store icon, each prize reveals the App Store logo embedded in the 100% recycled aluminum used to make Apple products, with the winner’s name engraved on the reverse side.

“To have been selected as the world’s best app in a year when so many of the world’s largest media and technology companies launched their OTT video services and apps for the first time is an incredible testament to the innovation and skills in our products, technologies, operations and partnerships,” said Ben King, Director of Subscriptions at DAZN.
